Lewis Hamilton has taken issue with the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law in Florida and plans to wear a rainbow helmet at this weekend’s Miami Grand Prix. The seven-time Formula One champion criticised the law, which bans teachers from discussing sexual orientation or gender identity in public schools, and also referenced oppression seen in Saudi Arabia. Despite speaking out against questionable human rights conditions in certain countries, Hamilton would not comment on whether F1 should avoid racing in Florida due to social policies. The veteran Mercedes driver stated that he stands with the LGBTQ community and hopes they continue to fight back against discriminatory legislation.
